    Default Spearmint/Citrus EDT for summer?

    I plan on wearing my YSL L'Homme most of the summer, but I was curious as to if anyone knew of a good summertime fragrance with prominent notes of spearmint and citrus? Something that isn't too difficult to procure. Thanks!

    Creed Selection Verte sounds like something you are looking for, but it's more of a peppermint smell than spearmint. Great mint and citrus cologne that I prefer much better than Heeley's mint fragrance. SV is one of the best for summer.

    Creed still sells it, but only by the 8.4 oz flacon. There are 2.5 oz tester bottles available, however.

    It's becoming more difficult to find but there should still be plenty out there. Selection Verte is a great choice, but I tried to give you a less expensive option as well.
    Check out my current NICHE SALE, you can't beat these prices!

    Hermes Concentré d'Orange Verte springs to mind: bracing bitter orange and mandarin over mint. The mint is discernable rather than super prominent, but it's a great summer fragrance.

    Cartier Roadster and YSL Live Jazz may be appropriate additional suggestions.

    If Malle is easy to get in your area, then Geranium Pour Monsieur is one to check out for sure.

    For a citrus-heavy cologne-style scent, the longevity of Concentré d'Orange Verte is not bad - maybe 4 hours or so (though don't expect tons of sillage). As always with this genre you have to be prepared to reapply.

    Thanks again for all the responses, fellas. I've slowly started checking them out one by one. Live Jazz is a real possibility as I tend to like YSL anyway.

    Question, out of all the ones mentioned above which would be the biggest pussy magnet? I mean, after all, that's what we're mostly wearing these frags for anyways, right?

    You do realize we have women who visit the site. You may want to save that type of language when you hanging out with your boyz.

    No offense intended. I don't have "boyz" though. I have friends and acquaintances.

    How 'bout Heeley Cocobello? It isn't citrus or spearmint but it is very fresh and summery, I'd love to smell it around more often, I bought it for my husband because its such a beautiful summer fragrance..

    And for the citrus maybe try Bond Coney Island, very attractive citrus with a noticable tequilla note that gives it that something special like some summer drink. It also has a distinctive masculine vibe tough unisex...I'm not a fan of Bond perfume but this one is very sexy for summer...and very long lasting also!

    Eh, I don't know. It wasn't really an offensive thing to say. I think those that were offended would be offended by just about anything. So I'm not taking it to heart.

    The vast majority of men, I would argue, use fragrance to become more attractive to the opposite sex. That's what I meant by "pussy magnet." It wasn't meant to degrade or disenchant women in any way, shape, or form. I'm actually a very big fan of women.

    Parfums 137 Spearmint is mostly spearmint (surprise!) and citrus.
